Matching Threads

I purchased this old sampler quite a long time ago, along with two others. I have been planning to chart it all along, but for whatever reason have been putting it off. Well, my friend Merrie has once again volunteered her services to stitch for me, so off I go, to my thread stash.
I am really loving the color combination, and as I discovered with the other three antiques I have charted, it is delightful to examine an old sampler on such an intimate level. Seeing the tiny mistakes on a sampler that looks rather symmetrical and perfect from a distance is a reminder of the authenticity of this girl's life.
